But Ms Hilda Twongyeirwe, the director of Femrite, said women writers formed the organisation because they were not being received as well as men writers which enabled them to shine.
Ms Hilda Twongyeirwe, the co-ordinator of the Uganda Women Writers' Association (Femrite), was happy for Ms Arac, but her happiness stopped at a certain point.
"When someone has won an award, it is an inspiration," said Ms Twongyeirwe. "It makes us say to the other writers, 'When is your piece coming out?"
Since its inception in 1996, Femrite has encouraged Ugandan women to tell their stories. "These girls who have won are working very hard," said Ms Twongyeirwe.
Ms Twongyeirwe, however, does not attribute it to the money and the support as much as the hard work and dedication the women of Femrite have given to their craft.
